Another month seems to be flying by so I'm trying to be organised by doing some planning for August.
I think it's high time for another sew-along, so may I present you with the challenge for next month:
Cue the brass band...
Choose Your Own Bag Adventure
We all have bags. We all need bags. You should never let go of a great bag (that's my insightful tip for today).
So what exactly does this mean?
It means that you can choose to make any bag that you like, and join in for a sew-along. You might have an old favourite pattern in the stash, or you might even have a brand new pattern that you've never opened.
The bonus for everyone who joins in is that we all get to share our favourite bags, and any nifty bagmaking tips. I'm quite sure that the Bag Designer Extraordinaire will happily share some tips with us too.
I'm hoping to make at least three bags during the month, but my first mission is to make myself another You Sew Girl Baguette. I use the one above constantly. It's the perfect size for running errands as it's nice and compact but still fits my wallet, keys, and phone. I can't stand lugging around everything but the kitchen sink if I don't need it (hence I have at least five handbags that are in constant rotation).
I'll put up a sign up post at the end of the month, but I just wanted to let everyone know early so that there's plenty of time to organise fabric / interfacing / bag hardware etc... and of course if you need a pattern, you know where to shop!
Also coming up, is Cathy's Come Paint With Me workshop.
There were still a couple of spots left at half price, so snap them up quickly!
